    There for our 9th anniversary 2nd visit and it was awesome. Our waitress Kimone was great and the Manger Burdette (I think) was very attentive. I requested to be by the fire place and the hostess told me it was already reserved after 20 minutes no one showed so my husband asked if we could move, with zero hesitation he moved us! What a great service. The food was amazing and generous. Thank you for making our day that much more special.

    The food and service was great! You can pay more for a meal at another chophouse, but why would you choose to pay more for a sub-par piece of meat? The apps were flavorful, the steaks were perfectly cooked to order and the drinks were delicious!

    My birthday. Service was not as good as usual. We waited a long time before the server’s initial visit. Abnormally long. Waited a long time for drinks also. Food was excellent, as usual.

    Great meal. Service was a little slow at first but they fixed that and made the evening fantastic. Host and server both explained why there was a short delay which I find helpful. I will definitely eat here again.

    There were four of us. Everything (and I mean everything) we ordered was extremely salty. French onion soup was terrible. Mashed potatoes are whipped to the point of baby food consistency. Filet visibly covered in salt. Also ordered were ribs, corn chowder, crab cakes, seafood board. Way too much salt on everything. Service was good.

    The service was very good and the food was also good. I got the fillet which I enjoyed. I liked the asparagus that came with it, but the potatoes were just average. I did not like the bread at all that was served prior to the meal. I came For my birthday and overall was very pleased with the experience. I also greatly appreciated getting a dessert for my birthday. Now I want to take my husband and other family members to your restaurant for their birthdays.

    Another outstanding dining experience. Crab cake excellent, filet perfect, seafood risotto delicious. As always, the best service from Kimone (and even Burdette!), with her excellent wine knowledge. And the best value on the menu, Creme Brulee trio, 3, I say 3, different creme brulee deserts for only $6. All in all, another great date night. Thank you team Shkode! Greatly appreciate you.

    Our waitress was absolutely terrible. It took 45 minutes after we sat down before we even got our drinks or a bread basket was ever dropped off. Nobody ever checked to see if we’d like another drink, and managers walking all over the place never came by to check how we were doing, and trust me, we would’ve loved to let them know how terrible the service was. The food was all acceptable, but I could make it better myself at home for a fraction of the price. Try McDonald’s for superior service and value.

    Reservations were easier than expected and because of that deserve the outstanding rating. Food was as expected, wasn't what I'd consider outstanding but it was good and worth the price. Service was good, again wasn't anything above and beyond what I consider normal so not what I'd consider outstanding. We would, and will, go back here again. Overall it was very enjoyable

    For a high priced steak house they should do better, frankly the Mac and cheese was dry we didn't even eat it. The steak was tough under seasoned . I wouldn't go back, you can get better food in a dive bar and pay less

    The food was outstanding we came for our anniversary and had not tried the steakhouse yet. We were very impressed with the menu, the charcuterie fish selection was very good. The main course we split the duck which was outstanding, hats off the to chef. We will definitely go back and recommend for a great fine dining experience.

    This was not fine dining it was high priced sports bar. Some of the food was served cold ie soup. the descriptions of the food did not match well. The Maryland crab cakes were lump crab. The Mushroom Fettuccini looked and smelled like dog food. Although the waiter was very nice and did not charge us for the it when we expressed distaste for it. The cocktails were full of ice and served in glasses not appropriate for the type of drink. Over all a disappointment was looking for a nice dinner. Will not return. Sorry .

    My Wife and I took my Mom to the Chophouse for Mother's day. It was fantastic, the food was incredible. My mom Had the Sea Bass, my wife had the Salmon and I had the Duck. All were delicious. The Crab Cake was very good for our starter. It was busy so it was a little loud but that's to be expected.
